Chinese gold medal swimmer Ye Shiwen has amazed Olympic audiences not only with her inhuman torpedo swimming techniques but her flying skills as well.
“After the swim – she finished first of course – she then got out of the pool and shot up through the roof of the swimming venue into the sky at great speed. We all ran out to see her flying at about cruising altitude of 35,000 feet. She must have been gone for a good seven minutes before we saw her descending through the clouds. She had a great smile on her face when she landed still in her swim suit. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen,” Tony Feathers, one of the audience for the 100m women’s freestyle event told the BBC.
Air traffic controllers at London’s City Airport also saw Ye Shiwen as she travelled at approximately 650 mph.
“We can confirm that we tracked an unidentified object travelling at great speed above the Olympic venue briefly buzzing our control tower as the object skimmed past the airport,” a shocked air traffic controller recalled.
Chinese Olympic authorities were quick to downplay the incident.
“She is human just like you and me. No she does not do special drugs,” Fing Fing Fung, told the Daily Mail.
